I Just Want To Be Alone

Attention.  I have a big announcement to make!

No, I'm not pregnant. And I didn't win the Powerball. I didn't win anything. And you're not going to win anything here either. It's not a big giveaway. my announcement doesn't seem all that exciting. Crap. 

BUT it is exciting! And it's something that you are most likely going to like. It most definitely will make you laugh, I can guarantee that.

What is it, you ask?
It's a BOOK. I'm in a freakin' book. A BOOK! I am now a published author. Yep, you read that right. It's legit. Too legit, too legit to quit. (Picture me doing the hand motions right now...MC Hammer style) And I have to say that I am so so so very honored to be in the company of the other kick ass amazing ladies that contributed to this book!

Look on the back cover! It says "Somewhat Sane Mom" right there in the middle. Holla!

And what is even better is that YOU CAN PRE-ORDER the book, I Just Want to Be Alone, right now.  Right this very moment!!!! Follow my Amazon link right down there.

But why should you order it?  What is it all about?  Well, it is collection of the FUNNIEST essays written by some super cool lady writers about the men in our lives.

Here is a little description, according to Amazon:
The second volume in the best-selling I Just Want to Pee Alone series!

Don't get us wrong, we love the men in our lives – we do (most of the time). It's just that sometimes we would like them to go away. Not forever or anything like that. Just for an hour … or a day … or a weekend. We want some time to ourselves to read a good book or take a walk or do anything other than try to make a dent in the never ending mound of dirty clothes that keeps piling up on the floor on his side of the bed. We just want to be alone. All alone. Is that too much to ask?

I Just Want to Be Alone is a collection of humorous essays from 37 of the most Super Cool Lady Writers you'll find on the web. Including: People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Baby Sideburns, A.K. Turner, My Husband Ate All My Ice Cream, and Bad Parenting Moments.

I have had the privilege of reading most of these essays in the book and I can honestly tell you that you will laugh your ass off!  I rarely write about my husband on this blog...but I did for the essay.

Here's a little taste:

"We still keep it hot and heavy.  Yes, maybe those are hot flashes.  And maybe I am still carrying around the extra 30 pounds of "baby weight" from 3 years ago..."
So if you are in or have ever been in a relationship, you will relate to this book. Trust me. You will laugh. And you will nod in agreement while reading almost all of the essays. You will want to read it over and over. Then you will buy it for all of your friends. You will give it as a bridal shower gift. You will read it in your book club.  YOU WILL LOVE IT.  

Have I convinced you to order yet? Yes? GREAT! Books will be available on March 22nd. But you don't have to wait! Did I mention you could pre-order your copy? SO go on back up to the Amazon link and click the order button.

Even though I am horrible at responding to comments, I read every one (even the spam comments trying to sell me cheap Christian Louboutins). Leave a nice comment and I will buy you a drink...someday.
